Thank you for being in touch about the Clarion Workshop and for letting us know of your enthusiasm for what it can provide.

Significant budget reductions from the state of Michigan required us to look at every program receiving state support. Difficult decisions about several very good programs had to be made in order to protect quality in core areas. Because we share your sense that the Clarion Workshop has served its participants well in the many years MSU has provided support, we hope you will now assist Professor Matheson in finding ways for Clarion to flourish without a significant MSU subsidy.

We are confident that with so many satisfied participants, and so much good will, that Clarion can continue on with community support. If a plan were developed by the Clarion leadership that is fiscally prudent, Provost Simon and I would be pleased to review it with an eye toward a continued association between the Workshop and MSU.
